Brazosport Christian SchoolServe Day, Preschool, and Spirit Week
Written by Anna Magallanes, Director of Development
BCS Serve Day
Twice a year Brazosport Christian School heads out into our wonderful community to serve others. We use this time to teach our students the importance of putting others above yourself, meeting local business owners and community leaders, and also HAVE FUN! In Matthew 5:16, it states “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”. It is important that we lead by example and encourage our students to take upon the task of helping others. Although it seems a simple task to send out students to help, it’s actually quite a difficult day to organize. We couldn’t do it without the leadership in our school, and local churches offering the use of their buses and vans to transport students to the different locations.
With the help of our local community, we were able to go out and teach our students the importance of taking the time to help others. Every student ranging from Preschool through 12th grade participated in cleaning, collecting trash, weeding flower beds, re-doing bulletin boards, painting lockers, sorting food products, picking fresh vegetables, learning what is all involved in horse maintenance and SO MUCH MORE! This is truly one of the favorite days for BCS! If you know of a place in need of volunteer work, please feel free to contact the school, we are always looking for more places to volunteer. We visited the locations listed below and had so much fun serving our community.

Preschool Field Trip
Our school takes advantage of field trips when we get the chance as it creates excitement, but also provides hands-on learning opportunities. Our preschool thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Farmer’s Corral and learning all about farms and farm animals!
